Added DiffLines:

* BelligerentSexualTension: Adams and the title character of "The C.L. Harding Story." He had given permission for a reporter to accompany the wagon train, but was astonished when it turned out to be a woman. He reluctantly allows her to come anyway, but then she gets the wives on the train to participate in a suffragette movement. She and Adams spend the whole episode arguing, though it's clear to Charlie and C.L.'s assistant, Arletta, that they secretly care for each other. At the end of the episode, they argue even more, but then kiss before going their separate ways.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGlassesGottaGo: A male example in "The Steele Family." Charity isn't particularly interested in the bookish Jeremiah until Adams gives him a quick "makeover," making him take off his jacket and tie, mussing his hair, and leaving his glasses behind.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMatchmaker: Adams is forced into this role in "The Steele Family," when four beautiful sisters cause chaos among the men in the wagon train. Getting the girls married seems to be the only way to calm everyone down.
* MyBelovedSmother: In "The Steele Family," Jeremiah is definitely interested in Charity, but he has a hard enough time getting her interested in him, and his mother's opposition to the match only makes things worse.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Bruto in "The Alexander Portlass Story" hates being called a "brute" because of the word's association with Brutus. Brutus opposed Caesar just as Bruto spoke out against Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, for which his tongue was cut out. Calling him "brute" reminds him of that.
